Dallas Homeowner Shoots Home Invasion Suspect

A man was shot early Tuesday morning after he attempted to break into a Dallas home.

Police said a 76-year-old homeowner heard his dogs barking at around 3 a.m. at his home in the 3700 block of Fordham. He opened the front door and found a suspect prowling around the front yard.

When the door opened, the 28-year-old suspect ran inside. The two began fighting, and the homeowner managed to get a shotgun from under the bed.

He fired one shot, and the suspect was struck in the hand, shoulder and face.

Police arrived, and he was transported to Baylor Hospital. He was listed in serious but stable condition.

The homeowner suffered several blows to the face, but did not need medical attention.
